Abstract

 

Most  research  findings  and  reports from   counselling  and  other  related fields   concluded   that families   today  are  most  often  characterized-by   conflicts,   verbal  and  physical   abuse,  in-cast infidelity,  crises,  selfish-individualism,   insensitivity  and instability  (Colins, I988). However,  an educator  and columnist,  Dolores-Curran opined several years  ago that we need  to look at the positive  side of  family  life by considering  her research finding  which indicated tha,t healthy family can   and   do   exist.   This  paper, therefore   addresses   the   role   of  counsellors and counselling psychologists  in the attainment  of healthy family life.  It outlines their roles, objectives and methods through  which  this result can be achieved.  It also outlines factors that can enrich  the family, which would as well help guide families towards  healthy  living. The components  of an. ideal faintly  in the 21st Century and their role in making healthy family  life possible,  subject to adequate  counselling  services  are also considered.
